New! GAPS Intro Diet Chart!

GAPS Intro Chart Sample-page-001

So you have been wanting to try the Gut and Psychology SyndromeTM (aka, GAPS) diet, but you don’t know where to start.

Or…you have tried it before, but got confused, and dropped out.

Or…the “Intro” sounds scary and you can’t quite figure out what to eat when, or how to move from stage to stage, or even how many stages there are. (What’s a “stage”, anyway?)

Or…you know you have symptoms of a leaky gut, but don’t know what to do about it.

Want some assistance in sorting it all out? Yes!

Want this all to be easy peasey? Yes!

How about a handy, dandy, well-organized and beautiful chart that lets you know what to do, how to do it, and when?

Yep. It now exists!

I am happy to announce my third chart, this one for the Intro Diet of the Gut and Psychology Syndrome, the healing protocol developed by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. This way of eating heals the symptoms caused by a leaky gut. Symptoms include: Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia, depression, schizophrenia…and many more!

Why did I develop another chart, you ask? Because I love charts. (Really, I do.) I love how I can take a lot of information and put it in one place, and make it easy to understand. (Check out my other charts on how to properly soak and cook Grains and Beans, and…one on First Foods for Babies!)

I am also a teacher to the core of my being. I love to share information. I love to educate. Most of all,  I love to give people tools to help them to heal themselves.

I developed this particular chart because I believe in the healing capabilities of the Gut and Psychology SyndromeTM protocol.

Why now? Because I keep meeting people, hearing stories, and working with clients to implement the GAPS diet that are very confused. Confused about what to do when, (what to cook and when to eat it…and how to move from stage to stage).  So, I took matters into my own hands, and created this chart.

As I mentioned earlier, it is easy to follow, contains all the information you need, and is pleasing to the eye. My hope is that it will assist many people on their journey back to the innate health and well-being that is their birthright. The chart is available now, on my website, as a download.

If you are a Certified GAPS Practitioner, and you would like to have charts available for your patients and clients, contact me for bulk orders. Monica@simplybeingwell.com

Allergies? Heal and seal your gut!

So many people with so many allergies. Allergies, sensitivities and intolerances…to foods, to ingredients, to dust, to plants, trees and pollen, to environmental toxins. How about you?

So many times moms have come to work with me in my private practice for help crafting a food plan for their child, having just received their food allergy/sensitivity test results for their child. They have come exasperated, feeling desperate. The previous test may have revealed 5 or 6 “trigger foods”…now the number was 30. What were they going to feed their child? How could we craft a diet or menu that was appealing with all of these restrictions? How could we craft a menu that they would eat? Overwhelming! I have even had some clients with more than 120 foods that had been identified as no good. Funny, every time they went for the next test, the number of trigger foods, or those that were not allowed from that point on, increased.

Why?

It is not that the foods themselves are inherently evil or bad. I have often said that gluten is the current “fall guy”. This week you react to wheat, next week it’s gluten. The next week, gluten and casein…The next week it’s gluten, casein, and eggs. The next week it’s gluten, casein, eggs, chicken, and green beans. Or carrots. Or coconut. Or herring. And so on. And so on. And so on, until you or your child seem to be reacting to just about everything. What is going on?

The body, specifically the small intestine, is injured…porous…leaky…and all of the molecules become reactive foods.

All allergies can be traced to the state of health of the gut lining.

When your small intestine lining has holes in it, not only are food molecules not broken down or digested as they need to be in order for the body to utilize them, but they also pass through the holes and into the bloodstream as foreign molecules. Foreign molecules in the blood mean that the body is going to respond with an allergic reaction or sensitivity or intolerance to the food at the least. If this goes on for years, autoimmune disorders may result…

So…what to do?

Surgery isn’t going to do it, folks. Nor are pharmaceuticals. The problem is in the gut…so the medicine is food. And while no diet can claim to do everything for all people, I have found one that does a lot to heal and seal the gut. It is the GAPS diet… the Gut and Psychology Syndrome by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. (For more information about the GAPS Diet, see www.gaps.me.)

Are you, too, gluten-free? casein-free? wheat-free? dairy-free? Have multiple allergies or sensitivities? Are you tired of it? Check out the GAPS diet.

I will be teaching about how to heal and seal the gut this Saturday, June 8 in Fort Collins, CO. The class is Implementing the Intro Diet.  (aka, HEAL IT AND SEAL IT!)

I will be teaching a GAPS Cooking Weekend in Silver Spring, MD August 9-10. All the cooking techniques you need to implement the diet with confidence.  Dr. Joseph Mercola called these cooking classes “ground-breaking.” More information about that weekend here.

The bottom line, folks…heal it and seal it. It all begins with the food.
